National Identity Management Commission, NIMC has again been recertified under the Global Vendors Certification Programme, GVCP, by MasterCard, following a recent security audit.
The security audit on the NIMC’s bureau facility was aimed at checking the commission’s compliance with the set down standard for operation.
The Information Security Auditor for NCC Group, Manchester Technology Centre, Mr. Zach Anucha said, “We came to re-audit the NIMC Card bureau facilities, to ensure that the Commission is abiding by the set standards for operations as recommended during the last audit exercise which held in July 2014; the good news is that I saw a lot of visible progress on the NIMC facilities.
“It is safe to say that NIMC has made a significant improvement and has done better than in 2014. The Commission has clearly made a lot of visible improvements on the set down standards and is operating at a better level.”
Mr. Anucha gave the report of his findings at a meeting which held at the NIMC headquarters recently, to officially brief the top management and technical staff of NIMC.
He also commended the staff of NIMC for their resilience. “No doubt, identity management is a serious business hence it is imperative for all hands to continually be on deck to ensure the credibility and safety of data that goes into the National Identity Database, NIDB.
The Director General/CEO, NIMC, Barr. Chris Onyemenam, in his remarks thanked the NCC Group, and assured that NIMC is determined to ensure that the facility remains first-class.
